WOW – it went by super fast it seems. Tonight, it’s once again round-the-globe to Christchurch, New Zealand this time to speak with Evelin Bourne. Evelin and I “met” on FaceBook and as I followed some of the things she was doing and saying, I wanted to know more about her. American born and raised, Evelin and her wife, Karen Taylor, took a bicycle tour to New Zealand to celebrate 20 years together… and Evelin decided THAT was where she wanted to live. Along with their Corgi Potter, they moved “down under” in 2006 and they absolutely LOVE the country that is now their permanent home. We talk about Evelin’s journey to NZ, why...

Then I have a great conversation with the founder of Yuba Cargo Bikes, Ben Sarrazin.

Taliah Lempert’s work is immediately recognizable for its style and color.  Her “statement” says: “Bicycles are important, beautiful, and worth a close look. Most bikes I paint are, or have been, used daily for transportation, recreation, messenger work and/or for racing, They are worn and customized uniquely, being at once a specific bike and a collective symbol of empowerment.” Her work has been applied to all kinds of “stuff“: magnets, coffee cups, coloring books, and T-shirts.  And, she uses her talents to paint custom bike portraits, much like you’d have a painting of your wife, husband, children, or pets. It’s a fun and chatty conversation! Then, we wrap...

Rode another 24 on Sunday and then left Mississippi headed for New Orleans.  We stayed at the Fleur de Lis Mansion in the Garden District and walked EVERYWHERE.  We did not move the car or take any other form of transportation until we left on Wednesday.  New Orleans is without a doubt one of the most interesting places I’ve ever visited.  The culture(s), food, architecture,...
